HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: The last working windmill in Yorkshire
Skidby Mill produces its own whole grain flour. It has three pairs of millstones, powered by four 12 metre sails. Each sail weighs over 1.25 tonnes, giving you some idea of just what an engineering project it was to design and operate a mill.
The mill grinds each weekend, weather permitting, and uses only locally grown grain. Visitors can watch the mill in operation and explore the milling machinery.
Contained within the Skidby Windmill is the Museum of East Riding Rural Life, where you can trace the history of agriculture and village life in the East Riding over time.
